iPhone 5 Launch Lines Estimated 83% Longer Than iPhone 4S Lines
Launch lines for the iPhone 5 were 83% longer than those for the iPhone 4S, according to Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster.
In a note to clients issued at 10:00 a.m. he estimates that based on counts at Apple Stores in New York, Boston and Minneapolis, the lines Friday were, on average, 83% longer than those for the iPhone 4S last October. This despite what he says is a trend of decreasing Apple product lines at flagship store due to the company taking a greater number of online pre-orders.
